Open Source Economic Development


Publication date 2007
Language English
Open Source Economic Development is a set of models, tools and disciplines that enable diverse groups of people to engage in complex development projects in "the civic space". It's based on the open source software development model, which encourages the formation of voluntary open innovation networks. Through a set of simple rules, a complex community evolves to develop complex projects. These rules balance open participation with leadership direction.

Economic development takes place in a civic space outside the four walls of any one organization. In the civic space, no command and control system works. Instead, we must build and align resources through networks. In order to scale these networks, we need a set of practices and tools that deliver value to the participants, while at the same time are simple to teach.

Ed Morrison is a member of the staff of the Center for Regional Development at Purdue University and Economic Policy Advisor for the WIRED initiative in North Central Indiana. He is a founder of I-Open, the Institute for Open Economic Networks, based in Cleveland, and publisher of EDPro, a popular weblog for economic development professionals.

Ed has developed a new model for economic development: Open Source Economic Development. This model promotes the development of open innovation systems ("clusters") to accelerate regional development. He is currently applying this model in Indiana, in Northeast Ohio and in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky.
